Welcome to the Thirteenth Technological Retreat podcast. Thanks for staying tuned and coming back. The five mixes presented here are from July of 1988. The first two are from the fourth and the other three from a tape that just says July ’88. This episode is action packed and full of nuts: Angry self-help teachers, freaked-out religious fanatics in DUB, classical nightmares and helpful literary advice from Captain Caffeine, among other late-night tales.

Welcome to the twelfth Technological Retreat podcast. The original broadcast dates of these four mixes were from March and June of 1988, and overall give me the feeling of Celestial Chatter . AKA, what the world sounded like to me back then. Imagine if you will, on your cosmic radio the badly tuned-in music of the spheres passing through and passing out of our solar system, riding sound waves on an audio cycle always heading out. Or imagine whatever you like while you stay tuned and listen...

Proceed with Caution! Episode 7 contains volatile and unstable recordings from a significant part of KFAI’s history, covering the time that we first went Station 2 Station. The first recording is from May 26 th of 1986, and was my last broadcast from KFAI’s first physical home, which was in the tower of the Walker Church. The next two recordings are from June 1 st , and are from my first show in our then new home on Lake Street, which was known at the time as the Butler Drug Building. The...

Welcome to another Technological Retreat podcast, available now in convenient travel size packages. This is the sixth trip into what the world sounded like to me, a melodic noise. This episode features mixes from two nights in May of 1986, the 5 th and the 12 th . What many people don’t realize is that May 5 th is Shoe Day, and we are fortunate enough, perhaps, to have this aural documentation of what a typical, late 20 th century shoe day celebration sounded like.

Welcome to the third episode of the Technological Retreat webcasts, where I’m presenting the Sound Collages or live radio mixes that I was making in the middle of the night back in the late 1980’s. One of the things I enjoyed most about late-night radio was the creative freedom. More often than not, the radio stations were just thankful to have people up there let alone caring what they did as long as it followed FCC guidelines and decorum of course. This was before the age of robot DJ’s...

Welcome to the second episode of the Technological Retreat podcasts, presenting the live radio mixes that I referred to as Sound Collages. That’s what I called these mixes, but I don’t think I necessarily invented the term. I had done late night radio in college before moving to Minneapolis in 1985 and enjoyed having a lot of time to play a lot of different music. Having an overnight show on KFAI allowed me to stumble through and experiment with this style of sound and to be able to really...

The station ID and intro are done by Larry Englund, recently departed and much-loved person within KFAI. This recording was made when KFAI used a boombox to record air checks with.

A collection of late 1970's, UK Mod 45's. In high school, my friend Sam had all of these records and I recently found the tape that I made back then. Lots of very bright guitars but not the brightest lyrics. Music from bands included are: Secret Affair, Squire, Purple Hearts, The Chords, Lambrettas and Merton Parkas . A nice slice from a small piece of R-N-R history.  Please go to the Dig Up The Roots Mix Tape page for more information.

A listener request to hear Jimi Hendrix played backward. This show was recorded in 1989, before digital anything, so this request took some working out but was very straight forward to accomplish. I recorded the track in the stations production room on a Reel - Reel tape while something was playing live on air. When the recording was done, play the tape in reverse on that Reel. Easy and very cool.  Please check out the Technological Retreat blog.

The "Tape of Leisure" series were made during a period of time that was very stressful, when I lived in two places that were 150 miles apart. I'd spend 1/2 the week in one place, the other in the other. I made that 3+ hour drive twice a week and needed good music to listen, relax, focus and laugh too. More information is available on the Dig Up The Roots blog.

This is the beginning portion of the theme from my old late night radio show - Technological Retreat . It was thirty years ago, November of 1985, that I began doing a late night radio show where I made sound collages. The live on-air mixing and layering of a wide variety of recorded material. It was a lot of fun. These mixes were not sample based, or dance oriented music, more like soundtracks.

Al 'Jazzbo' Collins climbs up Ub Iwerks bean stalk. This is a copy of one of the first video mash-ups we did at the now closed Suburban World Theater cartoon brunch series. The free form style of Ub Iwerks' animation blends sooo well with the hip fairy tale telling of Al Collins and piano playing of Steve Allen, that at certain times the synchronicity is hard to believe. But believe it or not, I'm certain you will enjoy it. Please check out the Frames & Grooves blog for more information.

This genre seems to be one of those that time was trying to bury. We all know of Elvis, Gene, Jerry and the cast of characters with long sideburns and twisting hips.

This radio show was recorded on January 16th, 2007. Dig Up The Roots broadcast on KFAI FM in Minneapolis / St. Paul from 2004 - 2010. It was a radio show that dug into the nether regions of roots music to present forgotten and neglected music from everywhere. On this show my guest was Doc Rock, and he brought up another great collection of old records. Talking blues, cheap thrills down on the farm, hillbilly hijinks and tall tales from the 1920's. Weird epic tales that span multiple 78 RPM...

This interview was broadcast on Sunday June 03, 2007 on Radio K - 770 AM. Some Assembly Required was a Nationally syndicated show that was produced and hosted at the U of MN radio station. Hosted by Jon Nelson, the show featured Tape Manipulations, Digital Deconstructions and Turntable Creations. The interview is about my old radio show Technological Retreat, the CD release of material from that show and the current sounds I'm making with the Ancient Mix Master.

On KFAI in Minneapolis, broadcasting out of the belfry of the Walker church with more energy than the signal and physical building ever could handle. I made Sound Collages, the live layering and mixing of sounds. They could be moments or last for an hour or more. The mixes were not dance or sample based mixes, more like soundtracks or Mood Music on the edge. For more information please visit...

This radio show was recorded on May 8th, 2007. Dig Up The Roots broadcast on KFAI FM in Minneapolis / St. Paul from 2004 - 2010. It was a radio show that dug into the nether regions of roots music to present forgotten and neglected music from everywhere. On this show my guest was Doc Rock, at that time in his late 60's and a life long lover of music. This is all his music. Yodeling from many times and places, traditional and experimental. Pygmies, Swiss, instructional, techno yodeling and early...
